This is a centrally located hotel, in the lively Temple Bar area of Dublin, which is the main centre of night life, in the newly revamped city centre.
The rooms are medium to large in size,. The décor is fairly modern, but quite basic.
The restaurant, which has been refurbished, and is very modern, is popular with local trade and serves a wide variety of dishes. However, it is closed on Sundays and Mondays.
The hotel is a modern 1970's style building.
The lobby is quite small, with the bar area leading off it.
The hotel also houses one of Dublin's most popular nightclubs in the basement. It is busy most nights and especially on weekends. The hotel and the Temple Bar area is not for those looking for peace and tranquillity away from the crowds.
Note: We update hotel photos, maps and descriptions on a regular basis – it is the responsibility of the hotel to ensure that these are accurate !

Price is excellent for slap bang in middle of Temple Bar. Had perfect coverage for Wifi even though receptionist said that only guaranteed in foyer!... Rooms are clean but basic. Have to pay for overnight rate for car park in Fleet St - get it stamped at reception and cost €13 - that's ok.
No means to keep a window open. Had to be held open with pillow as room was very warm.
room paid in advance,but insisted on 50euro deposit. When challenged about this, they said it was in terms and conditions.(Who reads those)well not in t&C's. Was on limited budget,with no credit card,so parting with this money curtailed our enjoyment. Would'nt stay there again.

Great location and a good price too. Clean and comfortable. Temple Bar can be noisy but if your going to be staying out late yourself its perfect, and it is right in the middle of everything. Location couldn't be better. The only negative I could find with our stay was that there was no tea or coffee making facilities in the rooms. This is the first ever hotel we stayed in that didn't have this facility. Apart from that I couldn't fault this hotel.
My wife and I stayed at blooms for one night and we would definitely return. From the moment we arrived we felt the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were given vouchers for two drinks each at the bar which was a lovely welcoming touch. We had been warned that the nightclub can be very noisy and disturbing but we found it fine. All in all a really positive experience.

Given the oversupply of hotel rooms in Dublin, (many of them new), Blooms is in bad need of a major refurb. Apparently, this is being done on a phased basis but it needs to immediate and widespread. The bedroom carpets were well stained. Blooms "plus" by a long shot is its' location, bang in the middle of the city centre. Its' proximity to Temple Bar however leads to a lot of night noise so expect much broken sleep. The bar is excellent and the breakfast was very good. Reception staff were friendly and the discounted car parking was good value.
